Sleek Makeup True Color Lipsticks - Photos , Swatches & Review

A girl can never have too many lipsticks . I am addicted to buying lipsticks, and my guilty pleasure is swatching them all in front of mirror when i have nothing else to do . Today i showing you three of my sleek makeup true color lipsticks.

Sleek Makeup recently relaunched their true colour lipstick collection.  The relaunch of the true color lipsticks range ($6.00 / £3.99 ) sees an eclectic range if shades that will take anyone from the office to the club with just one application. From subdued nuded such as Naked and barely there and hot pinks such as Fuschia and Amped , scorching reds like Vixen and O.M.G . Sleek makeup dare you not to fall in love with them all :)

 The 20 strong lipstick shades boasts a 16 new shades .  The new shades come in 2 finishes - Matte and Sheen.Today i will sharing my views on three of the shades , Baby doll , stiletto , and Vamp . Among these three only babydoll is sheen , other two are matt formula.

( L-R vamp , stiletto & baby doll)

  • Sleek Makeup true color lipsticks in Vamp is a deep dark burgandy shade
  • Sleek Makeup true color lipsticks in Stiletto is true classic red 
  • Sleek Makeup true color lipsticks in baby doll is a pale pink with hint of lavender undertone ( which may look great of light skin tones, for my skintone it didnt work out)
The packaging is very sleek makeup'isque , meaning sturdy classic matt black with their logo on the actual tube. 

The Sleek Makeup true color lipsticks in stiletto reminds me of sleek makeup valentine's day collectoin  . It kind of completed my collection :)

The formula of matt lipsticks are easy to wear , they are creamy and pigment rich with intense colour pay-off. They have no shine, all matte finish. They may feel thicker and can get dry on lips .I f you find matte lipsticks hard to apply  , Apply this lipstick with a lipstick brush to get smooth, even coverage. A matte-finish lipstick is perfect for when you don't want your lips to appear glossed , when i go out in summer, i prefer using a matt lipstick.  

The sheen lipstick in baby doll has an amazing formula.  Its  a hybrid lipstick/gloss formula. Its lipsticks with a sheen , so you dont need a lipgloss over it. They have perfect amount of pigment and sheen. The lipstick is so creamy , it glides on my lips. 

Below are the lip swatches . My favourite has to be the Vamp . When i first saw the shade, i felt i wont care for it but it proved me wrong ,it looks stunning. It will look great with lots of mascara only.  The stiletto is a great classic red. I like it too. The big disappointment was the babydoll, i loved the formula, i wish it went well with my skintone.

I am wearing vamp and smiling :)
